Les Vins de Vienne Syrah Collines Rhodaniennes 2016
ROCKSTARS. Nope, not Eddie Vedder or Joan Jett or Jay Z, we’re talking WINE rockstars -- that is EXACTLY what we have here today with this BRILLIANT, gushing, pound-the-table-fantastic Rhone red at nearly 60% OFF! We got a tiny bit more of this massively delicious stuff, because we drank every bottle we had bought for ourselves! Don’t miss, please!
Here’s the whole quick rundown for ya: A collaboration inspired by history, Les Vins de Vienne is a partnership of Yves Cuilleron, Francois Villard and Pierre Gaillard, three superstar Syrah-specialist vignerons in Rhone (Google ‘em!). There are plenty of $100+ wines in this portfolio and tons of huge scores, but, trust your happily besotted wine merchant - even the entry-level wines are like rollercoaster, badass reds. For this price...it’s silly. Anyway, 2016 is a superb vintage, and this cuvee is INSPIRED, thrilling stuff!! For $15?? This gets great scores every year, but we brought in a small batch early, so don’t wait as it will be long gone...
Crazy sexy nose of brilliant Syrah -- deep black fruits, smoldering wood embers (you like that?? We’re serious, though), vanilla bean, espresso, cigar box…the wine is powerful and super-long, but the balance is perfect. Just an outrageously good bottle and a classic example of this region. We barely got enough to offer again, so if you got some last time and wanted more...today is the day...and for anyone who needs a new blockbuster Syrah experience...move quick!
